Forthcoming conferences

24-27 June 2020: “What Does It Mean to Remember?”

7 April 2020 update: 

It is with great regret that we must announce the cancellation of the Society of Early Americanists “Special Topics” conference, due to be held at the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, 24-27 June 2020.

The health and wellbeing of our participants are our highest priority and while we realise that the cancellation of events will cause some inconvenience and disappointment, this measure is aimed at ensuring that our response to the current COVID-19 situation remains responsible and informed by the latest public health advice and expertise. In addition, we recognise that ongoing travel restrictions are making it impossible for people to make plans for the near future.
